Winter tires should be installed well in advance of the first snowfall. Regardless of whether they are snow tires, ice tires or winter performance tires, all cold weather rubber is designed to excel in cold temperatures, snow, slush and ice that Barrie is know to experience for up to three months or more.
Normal tire rubber, such as the kind on summer tires or all-season tires, hardens as temperature drop below 7 C, which puts you at risk. Tire rubber must be flexible to grip the road and provide traction to keep you safe, as well as others on the road. Winter tires are designed to stay flexible and provide traction in frigid temperatures.
At Woodward Service Centre, we offer winter tire installation services for all of the major brands while ensuring they are balanced for your car, truck or SUV. Keep in mind that it is equally important to have all four wheels the same tires. If you use different types of tires, you could experience a drawback and increasing negative performance in braking and steering.
It's never too early or to late to have your winter tires installed for winter driving. Bring your vehicle to Woodward Service Centre in Barrie, Ontario today and for a winter tire installation to ensure your safety on the road this winter.
